Florida Museum of Natural History

Exhibit recreates meeting between leaders of Etowah Mounds in Georgia and Lake Jackson Mounds in Florida.

Our story of Florida’s history begins long ago, when the bountiful environments of South Florida’s estuaries gave rise to a complex and powerful society – the Calusa Indians. Based on new research in archaeology, oral history and ethnohistory,¬†South Florida: People and Environments¬†will inform the visitor about Florida’s precolumbian past, the Indians of today and the rich seagrass and mangrove environments that still offer us their bounty, beauty and recreation.
